Dr. Mona Bhatia, Chief of MRI and Imaging Center in Escort Fortis Hospital, Delhi and Dr. MN Beera, Chief of Imaging in the Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon give valuable insights in contrasting various imaging technology during a conversation with Dr. HK Chopra, President CSI. Both echo and MRI have their own pros and cons. Echo remains the irreplaceable cornerstone of imaging because of its 24/7 availability, cost-effectiveness and speed. The number of echos that can be done in a day is 200 times the number of MRIs possible in the same time, says Dr. Mona. “While MRI requires a certain medical acumen, is staff-intensive and unavailable in most places, it is the only modality that can assess myocardium.”Though access is currently confined to proximal parts of arteries, MR angiography is expected to replace CT in the near future with evolving technology. This can be concluded from the current trends, which show preference towards MR angiography due to radiation used in CT angiography being unsuitable for CKD (chronic kidney disease) patients.
